Monster and numbers

I still love my patterned papers, but I also love trying to use my stencils and inks more. So for this monster I decided to make a background using my Tim Holtz number stencil and black DI.

I colored the image using Promarkers and stamped a sentiment on a die cut banner and placed it in the monster's hands. I machine stitched around the edges.

And there isn't really much more to say about this CAS card...If you want to pick up this image for free I suggest you pop over to the Bugaboo website as it's this week's Friday Freebie image.

This card is also for:
    Moving along with the Times - #20 Man Or Boy
    Fab 'n' Funky - #305 No Designer Papers
    Cards und More - #158 Masculine cards

    :) Very cute! Sweet little purple-people-eater! The stenciled background looks terrific! ... And of course the stitching contains the whole thing perfectly!

    I love this Pia - the monster looks really cool against the stencilled numbers background. I love using my patterned papers too but would love to do a bit of stencilling. Something to think about for future makes (after my house move!) Michelle x

    What a clever design to use as a background for your cute monster. Would never have thought of this, but it's so unique, and really added such a lot of 'oomph' to this scary little critter. Very impressive! TFS & Hugs
